Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

DeAndre Ayton

  1. Phoenix | DeAndre Ayton | 7-0 | 260 | C | Arizona | 19

Ayton has the physical gifts to be a superstar in the league, and the Suns shouldn't pass on that. *DeMarcus Cousns
Marvin Bagley

  2. Sacramento | Marvin Bagley | 6-11 | 235 | PF | Duke | 19

The Kings are enamored with Doncic, and they'll be tempted to roll the dice on MPJ, but Bagley is arguably the safest pick in the lottery and is a clear upgrade over WCS and Skal. *Chris Bosh
Luka Doncic

  3. Dallas | Luka Doncic | 6-8 | 225 | SG/SF | Slovenia | 19

Could be the next great point forward. A proven winner, very skilled and athletic, can carry a Euro team but what about NBA? The Hawks are reportedly "zeroed in" on Doncic. Could be a smokescreen, I assume they've found a trade partner for Schroder and envision Doncic as their primary ballhandler. *Penny Hardaway
Jaren Jackson Jr.

  4. Memphis | Jaren Jackson Jr. | 6-11 | 235 | PF/C | Michigan St. | 18

MPJ watch begins here. Jaren Jackson, Jr. is a tantalizing young prospect, especially on defense. Could develop into a starting caliber 5. For a Grizzlies team aiming for a return to the playoffs next year, are they willing to wait for JJJ to realize his potential? *Shareef Abdur-Rahim
Mohamed Bamba

  5. Atlanta | Mohamed Bamba | 7-0 | 225 | C | Texas | 20

A rim protector with a chance to be special on the defensive end, and began to hit his stride offensively towards the end of the season. With Nerlens Noel unlikely to be in Dallas' long-term plans and Dirk entering his final season, the Mavs are looking for a frontcourt player to build around. *Rudy Gobert
Trae Young

  6. Orlando | Trae Young | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Oklahoma | 19

Is he the next Steph Curry? Gotta love his potential and confidence he'd bring to a rebuilding team in Orlando. Reportedly in play for the Hawks at #3 but that'll depend on whether they trade Schroder. *Mike Bibby
Zhaire Smith

  7. Chicago | Zhaire Smith | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Texas Tech | 19

Unreal athlete, motor always running, an active screener on offense and aggressive, versatile defender. Very young, he just turned 19. Dark horse lottery pick who I think could be a target for the Clippers with one of their back to back picks. *John Starks
Michael Porter

  8. *Cleveland | Michael Porter | 6-11 | 210 | SF | Missouri | 19

Once the top rated player in this draft class, so he has star potential. The Cavs are looking for a potential new face if/when LeBron leaves, and it's rumored that they're targeting MPJ and will take him if he falls to #8. *Lamar Odom/Paul George
Wendell Carter

  9. New York | Wendell Carter | 6-10 | 250 | C | Duke | 19

Got overshadowed by Bagley but make no mistake, he's a top 10 talent who can play either frontcourt position. The Knicks need a longterm answer alongside Porzingis, and Carter's post skill set would complement Porzingis' outside shooting. *Greg Monroe
Mikal Bridges

  10. *Phoenix | Mikal Bridges | 6-7 | 210 | SG/SF | Villanova | 21

Not the most exciting player, but projects as a very good, productive 3 and D wing. Efficient offensive player with a sweet shooting stroke and improving dribble/drive game. The local kid is NBA ready and would have no trouble stepping into the Sixers' rotation in a complementary role to Simmons & Embiid. *Otto Porter, Jr.
Collin Sexton

  11. *LA Clippers | Collin Sexton | 6-2 | 185 | PG | Alabama | 19

I like Sexton a little better than Trae, and think he projects as the better PG at the next level. With Kemba Walker on the trading block, Charlotte may envision Sexton as its PG of the future. *Chauncey Billups
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

  12. Charlotte | Shai Gilgeous-Alexander | 6-6 | 180 | PG | Kentucky | 19

A passer with defensive range. Fills a need on the Suns as a defensive PG who can make good decisions, play off of Booker, and take on some of the scoring load. A bit of a project, but the Suns aren't competing any time soon and may like him as a complement to Booker & Ayton. *
Miles Bridges

  13. LA Clippers | Miles Bridges | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Michigan St. | 20

A powerful wing player with good elevation and an NBA body. Seems like a prototypical second option and glue guy at the next level. With back to back picks, the Clips can go a few different ways, but why not just take whoever they consider the BPA. *Jae Crowder
Robert Williams

  14. Denver | Robert Williams | 6-9 | 240 | PF/C | Texas A&M | 20

Questionable motor, but a long and powerful force in the frontcourt. Force on the defensive end who can guard the rim. He checks all the boxes as a frontcourt prospect, and the Nuggets are looking for an upgrade over Kenneth Faried, whom Williams compares favorably to on defense. *Chris Wilcox
Kevin Knox

  15. Washington | Kevin Knox | 6-9 | 215 | SF/PF | Kentucky | 18

The youngest player in the draft, Knox had an up and down season in Lexington. He has a ton of natural ability but struggled to put it all together at UK last season. It might take a year or 2 in the G League before he makes an impact. A wild card? Perhaps. But the Bulls are just stockpiling talent and pieces to put around Lauri and Dunn. *Jerami Grant
Aaron Holiday

  16. *Philadelphia | Aaron Holiday | 6-1 | 185 | PG | UCLA | 21

Holiday will be a solid pro. He had a solid career at UCLA and joins his older brothers Jrue and Justin in the Association. At least projects as a good backup PG, behind someone like Conley, before earning the keys to the car.
Lonnie Walker

  17. Milwaukee | Lonnie Walker | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Miami | 19

Raw and inconsistent but lots of upside. Mad hops, can hang in the air to make plays others can't make. Very good handles and shows promise as a ball handler, not just a wing. The Wizards will look long and hard at SGA & M Robinson, but go BPA for a potential solid bench contributor. *Victor Oladipo
Donte DiVincenzo

  18. San Antonio | Donte DiVincenzo | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Villanova | 21

The hero of the 2018 National Championship Game burst onto the national scene after dropping 31 pts on the Wolverines. The Michael Jordan of Delaware proved himself as a winner and just seems like a Spurs type of player. SA will be looking to replace Danny Green this summer. *Courtney Lee
Jalen Brunson

  19. *Atlanta | Jalen Brunson | 6-2 | 200 | PG | Villanova | 21

A rock solid PG with great instincts and a high skill level. Took his game to a new level at Nova, though not the flashiest player he'll get the job done for a long time. The Pacers have gotten stable, consistent production from Collison at the PG spot, but he's a free agent.
Grayson Allen

  20. *Minnesota | Grayson Allen | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Duke | 22

I don't like Allen; yeah he's a well-rounded 4 year player and few if any prospect participated in as many nationally televised games as him, but his immature attitude and inconsistent play are a turnoff. Thibs doesn't like to play rookies, but with the Wolves a potential playoff contender he may opt to go with an older rookie who can contribute immediately.
Kevin Huerter

  21. Utah | Kevin Huerter | 6-7 | 195 | SG | Maryland | 19

My Jazz don't need to draft a star with this pick, just someone who can come in and play multiple positions and take some of the scoring load off of Spida Mitchell. Expected to miss 2 months after surgery, some belief that a team (Jazz?) gave him a promise.
Chandler Hutchison

  22. *Chicago | Chandler Hutchison | 6-7 | 195 | SG/SF | Boise State | 22

Versatile, productive wing. The Bulls apparently gave him a first round promise.
Elie Okobo

  23. Indiana | Elie Okobo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | France | 20

Dropped 44 pts. in the French league playoffs, his stock is rising at a fast rate so don't be surprised if he winds up as a first round draft and stash. The Pacers haven't scheduled many pre-draft workouts and the rumor on the forum is that they may go draft and stash. Collison and Joseph are both free agents this summer.
Khyri Thomas

  24. Portland | Khyri Thomas | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Creighton | 22

Combo guard who's a high level athlete and aggressive defender. Has a lot of length and brings a ton of energy on defense. Anfernee Simons could be considered here, but Thomas would add depth on the wing in the event that the Blazers trade McCollum.
Jacob Evans

  25. *LA Lakers | Jacob Evans | 6-5 | 200 | SG/SF | Cincinnati | 21

An efficient offensive player and outstanding defender with good size for the SG position. A team player who knows his role and doesn't try to do too much. Won't ever be a star but could take Josh Hart's bench role as Hart may be promoted to the starting 5 if the Lakers let KCP leave.
Omari Spellman

  26. Philadelphia | Omari Spellman | 6-9 | 255 | PF/C | Villanova | 20

Nat'l champ Nova's center is a smart, skilled big man who excels at knocking down jumpers and can also score from the post. A good rebounder that will crash the glass on both ends. Projects as an effective NBA role player.
Anfernee Simons

  27. Boston | Anfernee Simons | 6-3 | 185 | PG/SG | Undecided | 19

The prep school standout is a lights out shooter who can play on or off the ball. If Boston is forced to trade Terry Rozier or loses Marcus Smart, Simons could eventually step in as a scoring guard off the bench with the potential to do more.
Josh Okogie

  28. Golden St. | Josh Okogie | 6-4 | 210 | SG/SF | Georgia Tech | 19

Another Combine standout who earned some looks in the late first round due to his performance in Chicago. A strong athlete who has nice length and impacts both ends of the floor. Still young, but provides an intriguing skill set for the Dubs.
Jerome Robinson

  29. *Brooklyn | Jerome Robinson | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Boston College | 21

Teams are sleeping on this kid. A talented combo guard who can play on or off the ball, create off the dribble, and finish with both hands and create his own shot. His Boston College team wasn't very good. Another piece for the Nets to add to their stable of combo guards.
Dzanan Musa

  30. *Atlanta | Dzanan Musa | 6-9 | 195 | SF | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 19

Rose through the ranks in Europe since turning pro in 2014, but the word is he has a lot of growing up to do as a player and person. Falls out of the first round range but becomes a nice draft-and-stash option for a rebuilding team like the Magic that's just trying to stockpile talent. *Gordon Hayward/Sam Dekker
Keita Bates-Diop

  31. Phoenix | Keita Bates-Diop | 6-8 | 225 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 22

A talented combo forward who'd excel off the bench as a modern stretch 4. One of my favorite prospects in this year's draft.
Troy Brown

  32. *Memphis | Troy Brown | 6-7 | 210 | SG | Oregon | 18

Versatile skill set, the kid can handle the rock like a PG and attack the basket for highlight plays above the rim. Draft-and-stash here? Musa, etc.? Also possible that the Hawks go BPA with a young prospect that intrigues them.
Bruce Brown

  33. Dallas | Bruce Brown | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Miami | 21

A dynamic scorer, great length for his position and can rebound, defend, and pass as well.
  34. Atlanta
Melvin Frazier

  35. *Orlando | Melvin Frazier | 6-6 | 200 | SG/SF | Tulane | 21

Prototypical 3 and D prospect who would provide some more talent for the rebuilding Magic.
De'Anthony Melton

  36. *New York | De'Anthony Melton | 6-3 | 195 | PG/SG | USC | 20

Suspended for all of last season so he's been out of basketball for a while, but has first round potential and excels on the defensive end. The Knicks may like him as they look for complements to Ntilikina in the backcourt.
Rawle Alkins

  37. *Portland | Rawle Alkins | 6-4 | 220 | SG | Arizona | 20

Isaac Bonga

  38. *Philadelphia | Isaac Bonga | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Germany | 18

One of the more promising prospects in the entire world. German point forward with a unique combination of size and skills. Playmaker who can get to the rim on offense and has interesting potential as a defender.
Mitchell Robinson

  39. *LA Lakers | Mitchell Robinson | 7-1 | 225 | C | USA | 20

The former Western Kentucky commit sat out last season, bypassing college to focus solely on training for the draft. Milwaukee is a dark horse landing spot for Robinson. They look to add some bulk and physicality up front, though they may also target shooters like DiVincenzo to take some of the pressure off of the Greek Freak. They could look for an upgrade over John Henson.
Moritz Wagner

  40. *Denver | Moritz Wagner | 6-11 | 240 | PF/C | Michigan | 21

A lethal shooter for his size, especially from 3, but not very athletic and struggles mightily to rebound for a big man, and difficulties from the charity stripe. However, his size and ability to shoot the rock may entice the Nets, who are looking for another frontcourt piece to plug next to Jarrett Allen.
Ayberk Olmaz

  41. *Denver | Ayberk Olmaz | 6-11 | 215 | PF/C | Turkey | 22

Landry Shamet

  42. Detroit | Landry Shamet | 6-5 | 190 | PG/SG | Wichita State | 21

Underachieved a bit in his last season at Wich St, but has a clearly defined role in the NBA as a secondary ballhandler. Could very well go in the 20's, but we know there are first round prospects who inexplicably fall to the 2nd round because that's just how the draft works, every year. The Pistons don't have much behind Reggie Jackson and Shamet could be special.
Kenrich Williams

  43. *Brooklyn | Kenrich Williams | 6-7 | 200 | SF | TCU | 23

Brandon McCoy

  44. Washington | Brandon McCoy | 7-1 | 250 | C | UNLV | 20

A projected top 10 pick last year who disappointed big time last season. Has Ayton-level size and strength, making him a worthy 2nd round gamble for the Wizards, who are a true center away from being a true contender.
Arnoldas Kulboka

  45. *Charlotte | Arnoldas Kulboka | 6-11 | 215 | SF | Lithuania | 20

Gary Trent Jr.

  46. *Houston | Gary Trent Jr. | 6-5 | 205 | SG | Duke | 19

A capable shooter who can flat out score. Got lost in the shuffle at Duke but the talent and potential are there. Son of former NBA forward Gary Trent. A steal for the Rockets who'd provide additional scoring as they'll likely have to attempt to keep up with the Warriors in the West finals next season.
Hamidou Diallo

  47. *LA Lakers | Hamidou Diallo | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Kentucky | 19

Billy Preston

  48. Minnesota | Billy Preston | 6-10 | 225 | PF | USA | 20

The former Kansas commit never suited up for the Jayhawks, opting to play half of last season in Bosnia after being ruled ineligible. He's a project but he was a former McDonald's All American so the potential is there. Minny could look to add some frontcourt depth behind KAT & Dieng.
Rodions Kurucs

  49. San Antonio | Rodions Kurucs | 6-9 | 220 | SF | Latvia | 20

Another late round international draft steal for the Spurs.
Trevon Bluiett

  50. Indiana | Trevon Bluiett | 6-5 | 215 | SG | Xavier | 23

Bluiett is highly skilled basketball player that has very good court sense. Makes his team better when he's on the court. He was instrumental in Xavier's road to a #1 seed last season. Could be a good value pick for a team in the second round. He goes home to the Pacers where he'd likely end up in the NBGL with former teammate Ed Sumner.
Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk

  51. New Orleans | Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk | 6-8 | 210 | SG | Kansas | 21

Chimezie Metu

  52. Utah | Chimezie Metu | 6-10 | 220 | PF/C | USC | 21

An impressive athlete who can attack the rim, make mid-range jumpers, and shows defensive intensity. The Jazz and Derrick Favors want a reunion next season, but if the financials don't work out they should draft some insurance in the frontcourt.
Tryggvi Hlinason

  53. Oklahoma Cty | Tryggvi Hlinason | 7-1 | 250 | C | Iceland | 20

Shake Milton

  54. *Dallas | Shake Milton | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | SMU | 21

A gifted ballhandler that can make jumpers and score off the dribble, but that jumper is inconsistent and can be passive on offense.
Kostas Antetokounmpo

  55. *Charlotte | Kostas Antetokounmpo | 6-10 | 195 | SF/PF | Dayton | 20

Kostas is a project player that's still learning the game (he averaged around 5 MPG at Dayton last season), but with continued development, he could be an intriguing prospect down the road. Hoping to follow in his brother's footsteps and after Giannis's rise to superstar status last season, I think his name alone is enough to garner him a 2nd round flyer.
Gary Clark

  56. Philadelphia | Gary Clark | 6-7 | 220 | PF | Cincinnati | 23

Vince Edwards

  57. *Oklahoma Cty | Vince Edwards | 6-8 | 225 | SF | Purdue | 22

Santiago Yusta

  58. *Denver | Santiago Yusta | 6-7 | 190 | SF | Spain | 21

Issuf Sanon

  59. *Phoenix | Issuf Sanon | 6-4 | 190 | PG/SG | Ukraine | 18

Raymond Spalding

  60. *Philadelphia | Raymond Spalding | 6-10 | 215 | PF | Louisville | 21
